September is California Wine Month and SLO County has so many amazing ways to celebrate the occasion. Wine is a way of life around here and we can’t wait for you to experience our authentic wine country!

2. Whale Rock Music & Arts Festival at Castoro Cellars
Founded by a couple of Paso Robles winemaking pioneers, Whale Rock Music & Arts Festival started with Castoro Cellars’ 30th anniversary party they called Beaverstock in 2013. The event was such a hit that they decided to make it an annual gig, and have been at it ever since. This two day festival will be held September 16th and 17th and will include music from Michael Franti & Spearhead, Jamestown Revival, The Motet, Turkuaz, Las Cafeteras, Hot Buttered Rum, The Suffers, and more! There will also be wine (of course), beer, cider, spirits, food, yoga classes, and arts and crafts. There is even a dedicated Kids Area with face painting, musical petting zoo, games, tie-dye and more! Plus, kids 12 and under get into the festival for free. Tickets still available for one day or two day passes. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind wine country festival!
